It’s very easy to see why this plant is named Lemon Lime…I am guessing because of its dramatic green and yellow a striped leaves. The leaves will reach two feet long and two inches wide. This plant is most often used as an indoor plant. This is the perfect house plant for your room that does not get a lot of sunlight, the Lemon Lime like to be left in low light areas. Direct sunlight will bleach out the color of this plant and will stress it out.
The Lemon Lime likes the soil to get a little dry between watering, do not let it dry out completely. Misting the leaves with a spray bottle once a week will provide some humidity to the plant which your Lemon Lime will appreciate. You might have to wipe the dust off of the leaves; the best way is to use a damp sponge or even baby wipes to keep the leaves looking clean as a baby’s bottom, be careful when cleaning the leaves as they do remove easily so just like a babies bottom be gentle. To get the most color out of this plant I recommend a water based fertilizer every other month.
Your free plant can grow to reach ten feet tall and will make a beautiful table top plant when first planted and when it starts growing place the Lemon Lime plant in a decorate pot in a corner on the floor. I like this plant because it is very attractive and stands out.
Your Lemon Lime requires little maintenance and makes the perfect houseplant. Just remove the dead and discolored leaves and your pruning is done.
Enjoy your Free Plant!
